Education is my passion!

 

Have you ever thought about the overlap of travel and education? For me, travel IS a form of education— it is the best education that I will ever receive! Every travel excursion has added a layer of understanding to my knowledge of people, of food, of culture, of history. It is how I learn about the untold and nuanced histories not often featured in schools -- although as an Assistant Principal I am working towards bringing that untold knowledge in the classrooms through racial equity & anti-racism work! 

As my career, I educate students and staff through my position as an Assistant Principal. As my personal passion, I educate others through my travel blog where I literally share tips and stories to educate and inspire others about travel! 

My brand started off with me just wanting to share my travels because people would always ask me for tips in <insert place>.

 

However, I have found a 𝗵𝗶𝗴𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝘂𝗿𝗽𝗼𝘀𝗲: 

  • 𝘁𝗼 𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗲 on all things travel, especially Black travel, domestic travel, solo-female travel, and plus size travel 

  • 𝘁𝗼 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗲 micro•cations

  • 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗳𝘆 underrepresented voices

Although my travel journey only began 8 years ago — the 1st time I got on a plane was at age 22 to a National science teacher Conference in Indianapolis — I have covered a lot of ground and learned a lot in a short period to time.

  • I’ve been to over two dozen countries  🗺.

  • I've been to nearly 3 dozen states (70% of the states) in the USA 🇺🇸, hoping to visit all 50!

 

As a result, I want to share this wealth of knowledge with you. I’ve been blogging 👩🏾‍💻 since 2016 w/ over 80 blog posts up & more to come covering an array of topics listed here! 

 

𝗜𝗻 𝗺𝘆 𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗼, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝘆𝗺𝗯𝗼𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗺 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗶𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲𝘀: 

  • 𝗕𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗳𝗶𝘀𝘁: represents the strength and power of traveling as a Black woman 

  • 𝗖𝗿𝗼𝘄𝗻: represents that I am a Queen – a Black queen, a Micro-cation queen 

  • 𝗠𝗮𝗽: represents spreading this Black power and #blackgirlmagic as I travel to one city, one state, one country at a time.


𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝘆𝗺𝗯𝗼𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗺 𝗶𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗼𝗼:

  • 𝗬𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄: feelings of happiness, positivity, and optimism from travel 

  • 𝗥𝗲𝗱:  a color of passion, love, and adventure for all things travel 

  • 𝗕𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸: a color of strength that comes from being a Black woman. I support Black all day, every day — Black people, Black history & culture, Black businesses, Black creators, Black travel... 𝗰𝗮𝗽𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗹 𝗕 𝗶𝗻 𝗕𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 

 

About Me

Part-time traveler and full-time nationally award-winning educator. My passion for travel led me to start my travel blog so I could share the stories of my adventures and tips I have learned along the way as I conquer at least two new countries and two new states a year to reach 50 states & 50 countries by age 50.
